The good: The HP Slate 7 [ Full Review ] is a durable 7-inch tablet, includes an expandable storage option, and has good gaming performance. Beats Audio effectively enhances bass-heavy music through headphones or earbuds.
The bad: The screen’s resolution is eye-squintingly low, large apps take a long time to load, and its cameras produce washed-out, dull-looking shots. Also, there’s no GPS, and Android 4.1.1 can feel a bit archaic compared with newer versions of the OS.
The bottom line: The HP Slate 7 strips out way too much to make its low price, and what's left can't compare to the Nexus 7's offerings.

Design
The HP Slate 7 [ Full Review ] features a 7-inch screen with a thick, thumb-accommodating black bezel, making it easy to hold without accidentally touching the screen. A silver metal spine encloses its entire body, reinforcing it over your typical fully plastic tablet.
On the bottom edge sits a Micro-USB port flanked by a narrow speaker grille on each side. The top edge sees a headphone jack, microphone pinhole, and microSD slot gathered on the left, with the power/sleep button on the right. Along the right edge is a slightly concave volume rocker. A silver embossed HP logo graces the gray rubberized back side, and in the top-left corner sits a 3-megapixel camera, sans LED flash. At the top of the bezel is a low-quality VGA front-facing camera.

There's nothing particularly distracting or uncomfortable when holding the Slate, just nothing especially cozy about it either. Aesthetically, Slate 7's gray back side would probably make for an effective contrast to its thick black bezel, but for the aforementioned silver spine, which kind of clashes with the light gray back. Otherwise, it looks like a typical 7-inch Android tablet. Ports and features have sensible placement, and the rubbery back and metal spine give it a durable feel.

Software features
The Slate 7 ships with Android 4.1.1 and features an effectively pure Jelly Bean experience. However, the State 7's slightly older OS serves only to remind me how far we've come in just a year. A couple of features in 4.2.2 that smooth out navigation, such as the pull-down shortcut menu, are sorely missed here.
HP adds a Beats Audio music-enhancing feature (more below) that seems to make bass more prominent when listening through headphones or earbuds. The ePrint app requires that you first register with an e-mail account, but if you're not locally-connected to the printer or on the same network, you won't be able to print.
Hardware features

The Slate 7 houses a 1.5GHz Rock CPU and a Mali-400MP4 quad-core GPU. It comes with 8GB of storage and includes 1GB of RAM. The tablet supports 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, and it features an accelerometer. There's no GPS hardware and no gyroscope included, however.
